Your photos this week are gorgeous! Your blooms look so fresh and colorful. The heat and drought here has left my garden almost colorless, and the heat has also kept me out of the gardens. I don't ever remember a summer like this!! We had a good rain last night, I just hope it wasn't too late.
Your photographs are truly stunning. Such a pleasure to visit and see what you have in store for us. All your plants look so vibrant, lush and healthy which at this time of year is a triumph.Paul
Your photography is stunning Tatyana ,thank you for sharing.
Even your Stachys byzantina flower is stunning, Tatyana. While the lambs' ears leaves are my grandchildren's favorite, the flower is not mine, but this photo and all your pictures are amazing. P. x
A visual delight Tatyana.
Lovely photos, especially love the daisy!! What is the pretty purple bloom in the first photo??
The tour of your garden was such a delight! The blooms are so elegant and subtle.
Thank you, thank you everyone! I appreciate your kind words!Janet, the first plant is Cape Fuchsia, Phygelius. I know, usually, they are yellow. I like this one a lot!
Tatyana, daises and orange dahlias are beautiful. I love them and have in my garden too.
Amazing colours and blooms Tatyana! A visual feast!
All that moisture in the Pacific Northwest is heavenly nectar for your beautiful blooms. We just got back from a visit there to welcome a new grandson into the world. You garden in paradise Tatyana.
Flawless as usual. You have such a beautiful garden. Everything looks so perfect!
Looks like your gardens are still happy. Beautiful blooms.
Beautiful photography, I especially like the next to last shot. The purple of the flower (pholx?) is backed up nicely by the black and white behind.
Wonderful pictures Tatyana, and so many blooming things still there in your garden. I think you are having more rain there, as usual. Locked in that drought still, with many flowers taking a summer vacation.
Oh...I have been away too long! Your photos are stunning! The photos are as fresh as the plant life. So lush and green...I feel like the other commenter...the heat has washed out most of the color in my garden! Your outdoor space looks like a dream!
Tatyana Dear, You never cease to amaze me with your stunning photographs! Seriously girl, you rock! That daisy, turned away with just a peak of the yellow center, fabulous! The Phygelius, perfection! I like Randy's term: FLAWLESS! Thank you for sharing.
Tatyana, what beautiful flower gardens you have! I'm wondering what the orange flower is? She's a beauty! I'm thinking Dahlia but not sure. Thanks for sharing your pictures with us. I am computer challenged, could we have names of flowers put under the flowers?
Betty819, thank you! You are right, it's Dahlia! Blogging takes a lot of time. I try to do my best, but when I am extremly busy, I just post pictures. Sorry for inconvenience!
Tatyana, your pictures and garden are amazing as always! My favorite is the first picture of the white verbascum (?) with the furry purple filaments and orange anthers! Stunning combination!!
outlawgardener, thanks! Yes! I love that plant!
Beautiful Tatyana; your garden and your photography!
